My thoughts on Southern Impact.
It was a really awesome tournament and it was nice getting to meet Gootecks and Mike Ross. I only signed up for SSF4 cause im crap at MvC3. In my first match I went up against Jan Del Rio, the best Gief in Texas. Our match proceeded like it usually does with my Rose beating his Gief without much of a problem. He caught me completely off guard by switching to Seth and I got sent to Loser's bracket during my first match. The competition was tough, all of my friends from Laredo had been sent to loser's bracket so early so we were bound to fight each other as the tournament went on. I proceeded to win my next 7 matches taking out DMG BurnyourBra, Demarcus ( best Viper in Texas), Fubarduck(owner of Arcade UFO and really great Ibuki player) Jesse(local Fuerte player) and Broly who is a disabled person that plays a really good chun, and 2 ppl who's names i did not know. After narrowly avoiding elimination several times I got eliminated from the tournament when I went up against Jewelman's Honda. What Gootecks said afterwards made my day lol. He said that if Jewelman beat my Rose then he had no chance fighting him with her so he went with Balrog.
I felt really good with my performance during this tournament. It was the biggest tournament I had ever been too. It kinda sucked that I got sent to loser's bracket during my first match but I blame that on not having enough matchup experience. It was fun trying to fight my way back to the top and I was one match away from playing Gootecks. 100+ ppl ended up joining the SSF4 tournament and most of Texas's heavy hitters came.
1st. Mike Ross
3rd. Fro (best bison from the Valley, the most southern part of Texas)
5th. IMT-PABBS me lol
After the tourney the Laredo Crew went to Taco Palenque with Gootecks and Mike Ross and I had a chance to talk talk to them for a while during the tourney and at Taco Palenque.. Gootecks promised me some mirror matches next time he came down here.
Here is a video of the Grand Finals between Jewelman and Mike Ross incase anyone wants too see
and here is a video of Gootecks interviewing Broly. Broly despite being handicap is really good. I beat him 2-1 and I was forced to play really lame to stand a chance against his Chun
